Learning about Water - 4-H Experiments in H2O

Exeter-Milligan students who participated in the 2010 National Science Experiment 4-H20 were in the front row from the left Joey Bartu, Brooke Poppert, Caitlin Murphy, Jacy Schlueter, and Eli Johnson.  Back row from the left were Patrick Murphy, Tara Mueller, Hannah Beethe, Kaitlyn Vavra, Janey Erdkamp, and Macy Due.

Lindsey Pohlmeier from the UNL Extension office out of Geneva recently gave three presentations to 3rd through 6th graders at Shickley, Geneva and Exeter.  Eleven Exeter-Milligan Students did experiments and learned about clean water and recycling during the 75 minute session. Pohlmeier said that she hopes to "encourage kids to get more involved in science and learn about the environment."  They also focused on learning how to reduce their carbon footprint with the students contributing thoughts about how they personally could participate.
